I keep hearing about all these people who juice their vegetables. I started out very skeptical of all the health claims, but lately I have been becoming more and more intrigued. It seems like a great way to add greens to your diet. I finally started to give in when I made my first-ever “green” smoothie tonight. I know it’s not juice… but it’s a step a closer :)
I got my inspiration from The Flirty Foodie’s: “Lean N’ Green Spinach and Avocado Smoothie” and from Iowa Girl Eats: “Green Monster Spinach Smoothie.” I had trouble picking one, so I used some ingredients from both. Thanks ladies!
Spinach Smoothie aka “Popeye’s Delight”
- ½ of a ripe avocado
- ½ cup Greek yogurt
- ¾ cup milk (I used coconut, but any kind will work)
- 1 banana
- 4 cups spinach (or about 2 giant handfuls)
In a food processor, or blender, combine all the ingredients until it reaches your desired consistency. Pour into your favorite glass and enjoy.
What are your thoughts on juicing? Is a high-quality juicer worth the investment?
